Project: Repair Drywall
Jayson the owner came out and completed a bid in a timely manner. All interactions with Jayson and his employees were great. Jayson was very flexible and understanding of my repair requests. Dirk did wonderful work and Melissa was extremely helpful as well. I will continue to use and recommend them to any and everybody.

I hired Above Average to paint and trim our daughter's entryway, hallway, two closets and all corresponding ceilings. The cost was very reasonable, and we were beyond pleased with how it all turned out. The team was professional, prompt, easy to work with, and always kept us apprised of when they would be arriving and leaving our home. I would be happy to recommend them to anyone needing painting and/or drywall work.
Response by Above Average Painting & Drywall: Thank you Kathy!

Project: Repair Drywall
I had to employ the company services due to the poor quality of work from previous drywaller. They were able to take a shabby job to a professional level. The entire team was very professional and wonderful to work with! I will definitely recommend this company. Thanks Jason! Job well done!

Review by in Bellevue, NE
Very disappointing painting and drywall work. We terminated the contract after a 1-week project was dragged out to over 9 weeks for no justifiable reason and the work not completed. Jayson and his team are wonderful people, but the business is not managed well and the work quality is marginally average. After the first 2 weeks, we received very little communication about when to expect workers to show up at the house. More than a few times, an entire week would pass without any communication. Regarding the drywall work, I had already hung 10-1/2" panels and 19-1/4" panels using screws. The work was meticulous, as noted by Jayson and his team. I asked for the joints to be mudded and the panels to be textured in order to match the rest of the house. Most of the work was satisfactory. In at least 3 large areas, however, the mudding had to be reaccomplished multiple times, which was rather surprising to us since the crew was "very experienced." Regarding the painting, the overall quality of the project continued to drift lower. There were essentially 3 rooms that needed to be painted after the drywall work. Jayson had not mentioned to this point that there would be overspray on the ceilings from texturing the walls. This became surprisingly obvious in the largest room, under natural lighting conditions, where the overspray did not match the color of the ceiling. It unexpectedly obligated us to repaint the ceiling. The next surprise occurred in a basement room where 2 exterior walls were mudded and painted by Jayson's crew. The 2 interior walls had been completely finished during the initial construction of the home. Jayson removed a damaged corner bead section to match the paint of the previously finished walls. What a surprise to discover after the painting was done that the tint was matched but not the sheen. The shiny appearance of the new paint made the flat white of the original 2 walls stick out like a sore thumb. This surprise was only exceeded when we observed the one ceiling that was repainted due to the texturing overspray. The flat white ceiling had been repainted with an almost semi-gloss paint appearance without asking us. Additionally, the walls where the mudding had to be redone did not absorb the paint evenly due to the large amounts drywall compound used and noticeable variations in the texturing. They look horribly streaked. Several other smaller issues compounded our disappointment. Under Jayson's direct supervision, for example, my home theater and stereo equipment was visibly spattered with paint and never cleaned up by his crew. Several paint cut-ins around the windows, doorways, and outlets had to be reaccomplished. And at least a couple of the painters had less than 1 to 2 weeks of experience, and were receiving on-the-job training. Lastly, the clean-up from the drywall work and painting was dismal. Outlet covers, window and door frames, stairway handrails, floors, doors, storage items, light fixtures, a 6' step ladder, HVAC vents, and electronic equipment were all mostly left for us to clean, which easily took 10 hours. On one occasion, the drywaller did clean around a vanity, though, by using one of our personal washcloths out of the linen closet without permission. Several times I had to personally request that plastic sheets be used to minimize the overspray clean-up. Overall, for a business that specializes in just 2 trades, painting and drywalling, the quality of work was in no way "Above Average." My wife and I found the experience very disappointing. After sending Jayson an email with a punch list of outstanding issues (streaked wall paint, wrong ceiling paint,..) and receiving no response for an entire week, we notified Jayson that we were terminating the contract. Jayson's entire crew was polite, pleasant, and courteous the entire time, but we cannot truthfully say our experience with their work would warrant a recommendation.
Response by Above Average Painting & Drywall: Dear Mr. (consumer name withheld per their request) I'm sorry that we did not see eye to eye. However, we made 17 attempts to fix the problem. You would not allow us to remove the drywall that you installed improperly, and replace it the correct way in order to fix the issue. In ten years we have never had any problems with any homeowners on any project we have done. As you can see from all of the other reviews we take customer service very seriously, if you look at our website you can see that we pride ourselves in customer service, and make it our number 1 priority. Again, I apologize we were not allowed the opportunity to resolve this issue. Thank you for your input. Jayson Ferrin

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
